The stereotypes perpetuated by Miss Saigon have been around for as long as Asian Americans have been in the United States. They are harmful and racist. As someone from North Minneapolis, a place where racism has impacted people of color on such a huge scale, I will not be attending and neither should anyone who cares about racial equality in America.
